The simple beauty of a bed covered with a white cotton bedspread can help create a luxurious bedroom look that is both calming and elegant. However, if you own a cat or two, or three, make sure your cats are declawed or that you keep your bedroom door closed at all times. Cats have a tendency to knead on bedding which causes snags and pilling of the fabric which will mar the aesthetic value of your bedspread.

Of course, white gets dirty quicker than other colors. Or rather, it shows dirt more.
When you own a quilted cotton bedspread, you pretty much own it for life, that is, if you take care of it. Like any fabric, your quilt will need to be cleaned regularly. But be careful, use only warm water and never use bleach on your quilt. Also use a color-free detergent that is non-scented and liquid based. Once your wash cycle is complete, wash your quilt again, but this time without using any cleaning products. This way, you get all the detergents washed out of your quilt, keeping it free of any detergents sticking to the quilt.

With all the concern these days for the environment, and rightly so, one may think he or she is doing all they can to minimize their environmental and ecological footprint by recycling, composting, using less energy and so on. But there’s another way you can help the environment and this is to choose your towels carefully. Buying bath towels made from organic cotton helps to control the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers and chemical softeners. It may seem like a small thing to do, but it can help in a big way.
